What would it do for you if you were able to execute the strategy that you have set out?
Strategy can be a nebulous and mysterious word. But strategy is your plan of action to achieve an overall aim. So if you execute your strategy, you accomplish what you set out to do.
A strategy is your plan of action, which should be made up of portfolios of projects that move you towards that goal. Each project should be managed, not for its own value, but towards the value of the portfolio, and achieving the strategic objectives.
